The general objective of COMMIT is to prevent and dissuade susceptible & vulnerable audience from extremism, radicalism & terrorism.
Providing them with skills needed to co-develop and disseminate alternative narratives promoting democratic values, tolerance & cooperation, and equipping them with competences needed to identify and resistsusceptible online content of intolerance & violence (hate speech, fake news & populist propaganda that can act as a stepping stone to radicalisation).
COMMIT uses technology that is based on artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The algorithms used within this project autonomously search for patterns in the collected data. They help us gain insight regarding the subject people discuss on social media and where signs of polarization can be discerned.
COMMIT always puts the protection of privacy first. We only use data of public social media accounts, and the data on the dashboard can never be linked to an individual.
All our activities comply to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the European privacy law regarding the protection of personal data.
